A Bromley dad is to walk between four football grounds in south London to raise funds for the hospital which helped his son who wasn't breathing when he was born.

It's believed little Alfie Muller has suffered brain damage after his brain was deprived of Oxygen for 20 minutes after his birth at Orpington's Princess Royal University Hospital in May.

Dad Jamie Muller said: “It was a complete shock. As soon as he was born, there was clearly something wrong. There was barely any sign of life. He had a very slight heart rate but other than that, he wasn’t breathing, and there was no movement.

“It was just horrific. Sometimes I know babies can take a few seconds to start crying and even a few minutes or so.

“But the longer and longer it goes on the more serious it is.”

Alfie was transferred to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Evelina London Children's Hospital in St Thomas’.

He received life-saving care including three days of being cooled to prevent further brain damage and three weeks of ventilation to help him breathe.

Doctors saved his life, but say he may have severe brain damage, although it's difficult to carry out the necessary tests whilst he is a baby.

Alfie’s parents also received support including a meeting with a psychologist and help with paying for train fares.

Jamie, 27, of Headcorn Road, said: “I don’t think you can ever say thank you for the work they have done.

“Without them he wouldn’t be here, and we’ll be eternally grateful for that.”

Now he is trying to raise money for the Evelina London Children's Hospital, and will be walking a distance of 21.4 miles between south London football grounds with family and friends.

He will start at AFC Wimbledon's Kingsmeadow, then go to Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park.

Next he will walk to the Den of Millwall, and finish up at Charlton Athletic's The Valley.

So far £1,875 has been raised of a £2000 target on a just giving page (https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/alfie-evelina).
